  1. Yes , it was from Lowell Solicitors. Donation made to CAG for it's great help. Thank you dx100uk and to Andyorch .
  2. Thank you for all your help with this. I had an email offering to settle for a slightly lower amount which i refused. Then i have just received a notice of discontuance confirming legal proceedings have been nough to an end. This website has been a massive help, thanks to all.
  3. I have sumbmitted my defence on line. Am I supposed to send a copy to the Claimaint or is completing it online enough? Thank you.
  4. That's great, thankyou Andy. I will get that ready and submit the defence. Jon
  5. OKay, I want to enter my defence today or tomorrow ideally. Here is my first stab at it - I have used a defence from a previous thread which I believes fits and updated it. I would love any feedback , check to see if I am missing anything or if I'm completely wrong. 1 The defendant entered into an agreement with Very - Littlewoods/Additions Direct which was regulated by the consumer Credit Act 1974 Under reference (Number here) on (Date in 2014)('The agreement') 2 In breach of the agreement, the Defendant failed to maintain the required payments and the Agreement was terminated. 3}The agreement was later assigned to the claimant on 14/01/2019 and written notice given to the defendant. 4 Despite repeated requests for payment the sum of (£1900) remains due and outstanding. #####Defence##### The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made. 1 .Paragraph 1 is noted. I have had an agreement in the past with Littlewoods/Additions Direct but do not recall the specific details or any outstanding balance.I have requested clarification from the Claimant. 2. Paragraph 2 is noted .As above I do not recall the details and await a response to my CPR 31.14 request and section 78 Request pursuant to the CCA1974. 3 .Paragraph 3 is denied I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served on 14/01/2019. On the 12th March 2020 ( sent by recorded delivery) I requested information pertaining to this claim by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a Section 78 request. The claimant has failed to date to respond to the CPR and remains in default of the section 78 request. 4.It is therefore denied at this time with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to: (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement and; (b) show and evidence the breach and service of a Default Notice pursuant to sec 87(1) CCA1974 on which the Termination referred to relies upon. (c) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim; 5.As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed. 6.Paragraph 4 is denied.By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief. --------------------- Thanks for your time and efforts in helping me on this.
  6. Thanks agian. CCA request sent. There will some BNPL interest on there. I'll submit my defence soon.
  7. Thank you for your quick reply. I will do that ASAP (Tuesday when my printer arrives), and then enter the defense before the 33 days from 5th March are up. I must have missed a step as I didn't think about sending a CCA request to the claimant. I think I was confused with sending a SAR to the original provider and CPR to Lowells solctors. But I will send a CCA to Lowells portfolio.

Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? No Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No Hi, I received a claim form for an old catalogue debt. I thought I had things in hand with the claim but the recent pandemic has just stuffed up my plans in more ways than one. My 78 year old dad is in hospital with sepsis and my mum is his specialist carer so she's having to go to hospital with him to sort out his care. (He is seriously ill and I'm very worried for them both and I can't think clearly) I was hoping somone could just check these details and perhaps give me a steer in the right direction. I have acknowedge the claim with the court online. I issued a CPR request to Lowell Solcitors and SAR request to Littlewoods/Very on 12th March. I need to enter a defence and want them to prove the debt and that the default was issued. I also want to know how much they purchased the debt for. (I had a period 2 years agi where my dad was seriously ill and in hospital for 9 months and I didn't attend to my financial matters like I should have. I really wanted to avoid a CCJ here but my plans to pay things off have just taken a massive nose dive due to the current situation with Covid 19. If 05 March is the issue date, when does my defence have to be entered? ( I've just ordered a printer so I can post copies of my defence to the relevant parties.(Very hard to find a printer at the moment) I was planning to defend as they haven't sent me the information I requested. Agreement and notice of assigment. Littlewoods haven't replied either. Thank you for your time and the valuable resources you provide here.
  9. Hi, thankyou for your answers, it is a free DMP.(I am thinking of cancelling it though as I cannot afford it anymore and I don't think they can help if i pay less than £50 per month. I will check with them though) I will get the SARS done. Thanks.
  10. Hi, just wondered if anyone could help me with a little guidance. I got in a muddle 3 or 4 years ago with multiple pay day loans. Taking one to pay the other and then due to a drop in wage I had to go to a Debt Management company. I have been on that for a while and paid off a couple of Debts. (Provident and Lending Stream) and also just been told that my Wonga debt has been cancelled. I am left with 2 credit card debts(No worries paying them) and 3 old pay day loan debts which I am planning on complaining about as I feel they were really taking advantage of me.(my fault but I feel they really take advantage in an irresponsible manner). I have no idea how much I originally borrowed or how much I have paid so far so I am planning to send S.A.Rs to Quick Quid - £400. Lucas Credit services? ( Uncle Buck?) £370 Payday UK - £330 So a few questions please……… 1) Does the fact I have been paying them for 3 years on a DMP hinder my complaint? 2) For the Lucas Credit Services - Do I send SARS to them or the original company which could be Uncle Buck? 3) When people say original amount borrowed + 1 month. - Is it the last amount I rolled over or initially borrowed amount? So if I borrowed £350 in June 2009 and rolled it over a few times would I take that into account? Or would the maximum I need to pay them be £350 + interest? I will start separate threads when I get the SARS back but just need a little help to get started.
  11. Heres that link! http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?318507-Basic-rules-when-dealing-with-PayDayLoan-Companies
  12. Hi, I have found email to be the best way personally. I don't have a template but I have found this post to be very helpful. See next post as I needed 10 to past a link! Good luck, I wish you every success.
  13. No agreements yet although negotiations have been made with each company via e-mail and If I could have sorted it all out over a 4 month period I reckon it could have been sorted. However due to a situation where my employer monitors my situation, they have said I must get professional help. So I am speaking to a couple of companies about debt management plans. CCCS / Debtline seem to be the main ones. I believe this menas they will include my 2 credit cards and a provident loan which I have been keeping up payments on so far. Good luck with your situations everyone, don't bury your head in the sand if you are struggling woth payday loans as there is help and support out there.
  14. Thanks for the responses, I may end up giving them copies with certain details like NI number blanked out, but I am relcutant to give them wage slips, income and expenditure etc at this stage - so currenlty I am just repeating my offer. Update - Now getting inundated with phonecalls including some at work, therefore I have sent further e-mails borrowing from the harrasment template and stating that all correspondence is to be in writing. Also I am about to send the original offers I made via recorded devivery so I have full proof if it does go to court. I wonder what tomorrows inbox will bring?
  15. UNLCE BUCK UPDATE So far so friendly from Uncle Buck. They say - "We usually only offer repayment plans in exceptional circumstances such as: Severe Disability or illness Imprisonment Terminal illness or Mental illness Deceased Redundancy or Reduced hours Unless these circumstances apply to your case we cannot extended the repayment term any longer than the 3 months offered." Therefore I explained how my income has dropped a lot and they say they need proof. Is it good practice to send them Payslips? I don't really want to do it but just wondered if that's an acceptable request from them? Regards Beefheart
